The images selected for this exhibition represent the work of a Puerto Rican Artist from the Diaspora. They are an array of works that are cultural in nature and also a snapshot of that beautiful urban mosaic of humanity that is New York City, complete with some disturbing images of Stateside life. Some were created for the purpose of garnering an emotional response and others to celebrate other cultures that have influenced who I am. These paintings were created during the past ten years. I wanted to celebrate my Latinidad.
